From the time of deployment to Haiti to my return to California, International Medical Corps was always on top of things. Their logistics , security, media staff were amazing. Being a part of IMC as a medical volunteer during the initial releif phase at University Hospital in Haiti was a life changing experience. IMC took great care of their volunteers. Safety and well-being of their volunteers was first on their list. IMC knew exactly the plan of action it took for disaster relief. They are by far a five-star organization and will always be available to them as a volunteer. If ever anyone wants to volunteer or be a donor ...International Medical Corps is your answer.

DO NOT waste your hard earned money donating to this group. In fact, IRS needs to have a rule to expose all salaries and expenses of non-profits to the general public since it's our tax money that funds most of these non-profits.
